Phil Anselmo

(Metal Hammer) Phil Anselmo says there is "no greater truth-teller" than Morrissey. The Superjoint and former Pantera vocalist praised the iconic singer for his honest songwriting during his time with The Smiths and in his solo career - and discusses how it's influenced his own work.

He tells Metal Insider: "Writing something that other people can get and understand - I'm glad I can be of assistance, because really, I was literally screaming my heart out about this particular situation in my life.

"The same thing goes with many other subjects, but I also had the whole drug addiction thing - people coming up to me going, "Man, I struggled for years and your lyrics helped me."

"I like honesty as a songwriter. I guess that's why I'm a Morrissey fan and a Smiths fan. There is no greater truth-teller than Morrissey." Read more here.
